there is either an obama administration for a second time or a new mitt romney administration. and we'll have a very brief period for a very polarized congress to try to come up with some sort of a solution to the fiscal cliff. now i think both sides want it to happen, however, there is, there has been some stubbornness on the part of both sides on some very key issues and the fiscal cliff would represent a departure in the gdp. we could actually end up seeing gdp growth, closer to zero and that's going to show up in jobs numbers. jenna: that is good context for us because whoever wins the election next week on tuesday that same congress is returning and that same congress will have to deal with some very big problems we have ahead for us in the country over next couple months. great to see you again. >> thanks very much for having me. jon: well, recovery from superstorm sandy has an additional component now. the ongoing search for gasoline in new york and new jersey. patience also in short supply across that region as drivers who actually can find a gas station open have to deal with lines l
the start of the obama administration, the two parties have been at war about the wisdom, legality and practicality of the affordable care act. what's next when it comes to healthcare? maria hinojosa of need to know has that. >> it's been two and a half years since congress passed the president's controversial affordable care act and four months since the supreme court upheld the heart of the legislation. but most of the bill, which eventually might insure another 30 million people, actually doesn't go into effect until 2014. whether it ever does will depend on what happens next tuesday and not just in the presidential race. >> what the court did not do on it's last day in session, i will do on my first day if elected president of the united states and that is i will act to repeal obamacare. >> mitt romney has said again and again he will get rid of obamacare as soon as he takes office. whether he can might be another story. >> it'd be pretty difficult for him to actually repeal the healthcare law within 24 hours. he would need to go to congress and we'd still have to wait and see
to realize that this is our katrina. >> the obama administration responded to complaints that fema was late on the scene and amounted the deputy administrator will be there tomorrow and fema wants everyone who needs assistance to call. 1- 800-621-fema or disasterassistance.gov. >>> president obama was back on the campaign trail in wisconsin, but still focused on storm recovery back east. the trail. >> in new jersey yesterday and saw the devastation and you really get a sense of how difficult this is going to be for a lot of people. but you know, we've been inspired these past few days. because when disaster strikes, we see america at its best. the consumer in these times all seem to melt away. there are no democrats or republicans during the storm. just fellow americans. >> his response to the storm has earned him big praise. 78% approve of how he's dealt with the hurricane. images and headlines like this have helped, too, featuring chris christie of new jersey on a bipartisan storm damage tour together from wednesday. but not everyone's a fan of the federal agencies that handle disasters l
. bill: also, martha, there are questions about how the obama administration handled the terror attack in libya in the early hours and days. senior counterterrorism officials who could have saved lives there, left out of the loop? >> the security in benghazi was a struggle and remained a struggle throughout my time there. the situation remained uncertain and reports from some libyans indicated it was getting worse. diplomatic security remained weak. in april there was only one u.s. diplomatic security agent stationed there. esterol as part of a heart healthy diet. that's true. ...but you still have to go to the gym. ♪ the one and only, cheerios bill: this just in, fox news alert. governor romney weighing in on the october jobs report. here is the statement in part. the increase in the unemployment rate is sad reminder that the economy is at virtual stand still. the jobless rate is higher than it was when president obama took office and there are still 23 million americans struggling for work. we are live on the campaign trail with governor romney in a matter of minutes. when we get c
used to be required to work to be on the program. the obama administration eliminated that. they've changed the rules and that has allowed many, many people in. a big example i'd like to look at is unmarried people. for some strange reason, unmarried people have fallen much farther below unemployment than married people. they have a lot better access to these programs. >> have the work requirements been removed, casey? is that a problem? the work requirements? is it too easy to go on safety net programs? >> that would be one of a dozen things that has happened. that's one of the factors. >> may i respectfully interject here? i don't know what professor mulligan is talking about. there's still three people looking for every job opening. when you have three people looking for every job opening you want to have safety nets there for people. it's not only fogood for the people but puts money in their pockets to buy things and keeps other people employed. this is economics 101. >> now there are millions of people who can make just as much by not working. that's a bad situation. >> i w
in the bush administration and there's always been a point of emphasis, if you will, on fema by the obama administration. i think frankly it won't have mattered who came into the presidency in the post katrina world there was going to be an emphasis on fema. you weren't going to let that get politicized. yes, it's a political appointee and you're going to have somebody who came with a background to do this stuff. so i think that they realize that it's a high-wire act, this emergency management business. and most of the time if you do a good job it's good politics. if you blow it, it's really bad politics. >> i agree. >> it can be unrecoverable politics. so this is a case where good politics and good public policy and good management all converge. it's good politics to do a good job. you're not playing one side against the other. >> you know, i've always thought that the democrats being the government party because they believe in government more than republicans owe a greater debt, a greater responsibility to be good at it, right? this is a little more ideological but it seems to me if th
of this whole process of the editorial board that four more years of an obama administration would change any of that, and particularly momentum on the economic front was just something that this board couldn't see. >> cenk: all right now everybody is here, ana kasparian, michael shure, jayar jackson, they join us for this conversation. as i listen to that i think that's one of the dumbest things i ever heard. now we have partisan gridlocks let's make sure that we award the republicans because they won't work with the democrats let's just award the republicans. >> you be are saying there is a partisan gridlock and then you want to give the guy that will give them what they want. i don't care what they're endorsing. i feel like as a newspaper you should not be endorsing anybody. i don't care in it's the editorial board i'm not interested in that. >> cenk: we discussed that earlier in the day. we know that newspapers have been endorsing candidates for a long time. why do they do that? >> generally the history of the newspaper endorsement was about the best chance for good change in that localit
city marathon was cancelled. the obama administration has announced plans to distribute up to 22 million gallons of gas and diesel in the recovery zone. which has been very hard-hit by fuel shortages. and oh, by the way, there's a national presidential election in four days. and yeah, there's some news about that, too. that is all ahead this next hour. we'll be right back.

% enrichment activities. but the key problem here is that the obama administration, like the bush administration before it, refuses to acknowledge clearly iran's right to enrich uranium on its own soil. even if the obama administration, and there are rumors they are think of doing this after they're elected, were to offer iran a bigger carrot, as if the iranians were donkeys, and a final shot at diplomacy, there is no indication that the obama administration is willing to clearly recognize iran's right to enriched uranium on its own soil. and, therefore, there won't be a deal. even if there's no deal and iran doesn't collapse, some policy elites continue to posit that sanctions and their version of diplomacy is all worth it. it is worth any and because iranians, middle eastern publics, and americans most importantly will come to see that iran's is suffering and inability to get a deal on the nuclear issue is the iranian government's fault. and, therefore, it will be understandable, and even justified for the united states in the end to strike iran militarily. but we should have no
refused to endorse any candidate in 2008 said in the aftermath of hurricane sandy the obama administration's efforts to address environmental issues proved more important than ever. and he went on to say, when i step into the voting booth i think about the world i want to leave my two daughters and the values that are required to guide us there. the two party nominees for president offer different vision on where they want to lead america. one sees climate change as an urgent problem that threatens our planet. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence at risk management above electoral politics." if you want to see what putting electoral politics over scientific evidence and risk management looks like, here it is. >> what about climate? that's what caused this monster storm. climate change. >> once again, mitt romney doesn't say a word because in conservative crowds the science of climate change is just too controversial. climate change is something that you can just heckle right on out of the room. it's not connected to floods or fires or devastation we saw this week
implication that the barack obama administration has. when i listen to these republicans, they're despicable. they practice all types of obstacles in front of this man. they lie. romney is a serial liar. host: let's go back to the economy. talk to me about the comparisons in your mind about the u.s. economy and overseas economy and why your optimism is, in fact, or, as you say, based on how our economy is doing versus economies from overseas. >> well, relatively speaking, when you take a look at some of the european economies, particularly some of the cutbacks in government and all it did was fire the economy up into a worse situation, when you take a look at france, they elected a new president there, and he's trying to implement the same type of progressive policies that the obama administration has done. it's clear that stimulus has worked despite the distortions about it. it appears this appears to be working in some other parts of europe. therefore, i think when you take a relative view of it, and you understand that we're recovering from the deepest recession since the depression, i me
, the auto rescue initiated under the bush administration and executed under the barack obama team. an estimated 160,000 of them wouldn't have jobs if the government wouldn't have stepped in with loans. the reason that it comprised one-half of joe biden's two-line campaign slogan for election and why romney tried to race away from the position at the time he held at the time of the crisis, to let the auto industry go through a free fall bankruptcy. now, i supported the auto rescue at the time. i think it's been well handled by the obama administration. there's something more bizarre that after the first term, the president ended the war in iraq, passed landmark reform and a health care bill that is the most significant piece in year, a bill that gives each american access to health insurance for the first time. after all that, the president's re-election would come to rest at the execution of a package initiated by george w. bush in the last days of his time in office. imagine getting in a time machine and going back to the mall in 2009 and telling people in a crowd of more than 1
to jail. >> stephanie: and ben, reassure my listeners, because it seems like the obama administration has pretty much been all over this. obviously we have won at the courthouse in pretty much every state, in this wisconsin one, they wrote there are certainly concerns under wisconsin law, take all necessary steps to protect the rights of our voters. it seems like the obama team is really on the ball on this am i right? >> yes, [ inaudible ] has done a great job of frankly rebuilding a function that had been almost completely decimated by the bush administration, but we have seen since 2000 secretaries of state across the country, hyperpartism, and engaging in behavior that is anti-democratic, and goes against the spirit and the express purpose of their positions. >> stephanie: yeah. ben, absolutely, too many people have died for this right. do not let them take away your right to vote. tell people where they can go to find out the rights in their state. >> folks can go to naacp.org and text v-o-t-e to 6227 and get it that way. and you are so right. and that's one
another continuing resolution used to fund the governments, the obama administration had not passed a budget was coming up. the republicans, the republican leaders believe it was an easy vote, and their own members voted against it. and the appropriations committee , which designs these continuing resolutions and all other spending bills was serious and they insisted on meeting with the. they said, you need to punish these members. we are the ones being punished. were doing everything you want us to do, cutting spending, and these guys still one vote for it. any to fall in line. and he said family can't do that anymore. it will make mars of the. >> so they don't feel like they're in a position to lead on matters of the debt ceiling or anything else. >> in fact, i think it is interesting. this fall but has been devoted to a the debt ceiling. specifically, you know, long magazine stories to the so-called grand bargain between the speaker and obama that fell apart. from my standpoint all of that is when and sales, with all due respect to the authors of those stories and books because t
. if the epa is successful, if the obama administration is successful at shutting down the navajo generating station, that will be devastating for the state. that is something we are fighting. the epa said the other day they are not just looking at njf, they are looking at coronado and apache as well. i had a letter and had every member sign it to tell the epa to slow down. let's have some public comment and some more hearings. we are working on those issues, and we have to continue to. you have to be able to work with the other side on the issues. >> would you repeat the question? >> several issues are relevant to rural arizonans. if you are to win the election, which would you say that you have championed for them if you run for reelection? >> first and foremost, jobs and the economy. we are desperate here. we have a 30% unemployment rate. there is a lot can do that we have mentioned already. create an environment that is conducive to attracting business here. it includes tax reform. closing the loopholes of the top. helping small businesses and keeping taxes low for arizona families. it a
the auto rescue at the time. i think it's been well handled by the obama administration. there's something more bizarre that after the first term, the president ended the war in iraq, passed landmark reform and a health care bill that is the most significant piece in year, a bill that gives each american access to health insurance for the first time. after all that, the president's re-election would come to rest at the execution of a package initiated by george w. bush in the last days of his time in office. imagine getting in a time machine and going back to the mall in 2009 and telling people in a crowd of more than 1 million, the man about to get sworn in would see his re-election hinged on the pack onlg of loans the bush administration authorized. there's no way they would believe you. the reason for this strange state of affairs is the electoral college, a small category of swing states and a vast wasteland of states where they do not. we have become so accustoms to it, we don't think it's strange. of course it played out well in the swing state of ohio. it should. 160,000 jobs in ohi
mathematical formulas. >> i don't think they are soup human, but there was debates in the obama administration how big is the gap? how much do you need to fill it? how much do you do on your own or just to lay a floor and let the private sector do the rest, and to some extempt, there was an economic question and a political question, how many did you get congress to accept? how much are they willing to pass? some people on the lest are mad at larry summers because christina omer was suggesting you have to go over $1 trillion, and summers, they were like, hey, no way you're getting that number through congress, and, you know, the rovers of the world looked correct that if we were able to get more in there, we could be in a better place today. that's a counterargument that on paper, maybe that's true, but there's only so much the government can do to process that money in a constructive way so maybe you were hitting the ceiling of diminishing returns. you can only one run test at a time. you don't know who is right. i say as far as speed of government action is concerned, usually, they are too s
that there is a political bent to it because of the timing because it does celebrate a victory by the obama administration in taking that risk and doing what they did. >> look. it celebrates a victory for a whole team of americans. and the local nationals in pakistan who assisted us. that's one part of the story that hasn't really been told. the assets that we had in pakistan beyond dr. fried irk who helped us track and take down osama bin laden. i didn't schedule the date. harvey weinstein didn't schedule the date. nat geo scheduled the date. part by fox broadcasting. i don't think they have any agenda in seeing the president get re-elected. >> what do you hope is a takeaway from this film? >> i think the film ace triumph of bipartisan cooperation, especially cooperation amongst the intelligence community and the dod and the military. the cia led this mission and the military executed it. for all the heat that our intelligence communities have taken, i think this is one situation where they operated pretty flawlessly. >> s.e.a.l. team six the raid on osama bin laden premiers tomorrow night on the nationa
the election of the obama administration and in your book you talk about the complicity of the obama administration in causing what happened. you can do it better than me. >> i think that the great sort of disaster that we have never overcome in the country is the wall street bailout. the financial crisis and the wall street bailout and we still the banks today are bigger than they were before. we haven't put any kind of serious regulation on them. we haven't broken them up. and, you know, we're dealing with, you know, regulation that are totally inadequate for the guys still. and i think this is allowing this to happen, and remember, it was one of the first it was hanging over the country's head when barack obama was sworn in as president, and his first move in office were to signal continuity with the bush administration, with hank paulson, by the way, and, you know, i don't know if president bush is here, but -- [laughter] but the bank bailout are one of the , i mean, this is the great outrage of our time inspect is what launched the tea party movement. this is what launched occup
that meant. and so is the obama administration we don't have access to advertisements like you can see across the country. are they doing something to define it that way out there? because the president really does need some control over the tea party. >> ok. so the first question about voter protection. what does the battle look like there? >> i mean, yeah i just will -- i will say this. every year there are problems in every single state with voting. those of you who go to voting places know primarily what those problems involve. there are nice sometimes most often elderly people whose task it is to help people get to the voting place. sometimes, those remember montgomery county nobody taught them how to turn on the machines so people showed up to vote the machines weren't turned on. this is not a imcl conspiracyy to deny people the right to vote. this is a fact that a lot of nice people had no idea how to work a machine. that is 99% of what goes on. every year we put people we task them to be ballot watch. watch out for what's happening and we've got to -- reports of any problems anywhere.
is the same thing that actually was practiced in the george w. bush administration. president obama isn't using george w. bush's name, but the message is actually pretty crystal clear. and you're seeing these two competing closing arguments at the very end. >> with that being the argument from the president that, you know, especially before hurricane sandy it was when mitt romney unveiled this notion that he is the change candidate here, how has his campaign, or have they effectively fought back that what he is offering back at this late game, 3, 2, 1, what we is a at the bottom, he offering anything that proves he would in fact bring in change? >> well, he hasn't rebutted those criticisms of how his policies are different than george w. bush's. the one he has pointed out, and he did this at the debate is he would actually balance the budget, something that george w. bush didn't do. so that's where he says he would be different. but when you actually look at a lot of the advisers, a lot of the economic policies, they do seem the same. and he hasn't really rebutted that. but what he is a
everybody is all right and it is a rare moment where a republican praises president obama. now, one republican who did not was the former fema director under george w. bush, michael brown. if you don't remember who michael brown is, you might remember this moment during the bush administration. >> there will be plenty of opportunities to help later on. right now, the immediate concern is to save lives and get food and medicine to people so we can stabilize the situation. i want to thank you all and brownie, you're doing a heck of a job. the fema director is working 24/7. [ applause ] >> cenk: well, that became a big dispute later. michael brown spoke out today and said that president obama was moving too fast during this storm which is fascinating. and he then went on to clarify he said in the context of the election, i simply said he should have waited, the storm was still forming people were debating whether it was going to be as bad as expected or not and i noted that the president should have let the governors and
an james lee whit, and the tragedy of gorge w bush's administration, fema and michael brown at the time of katrina. barack obama rebuilt it. and we are seeing it it work and respond. >> woodruff: do you think the storm could be making that much of a difference. >> i think the perception and you see activity and you see the chris christie thing. people are saying why is christie doing this, for his own mattal ambitions. >> i don't think there is anything like that when you are the governor of a state, a state you love that is in your heart and soul you feel an intense sense of stewardship. and when it gets wallopped by the storm the poll particulars seems irrelevant at this point. and as christie said, i don't care about the politics. if he is going to help me with my state, he is going to help the people of my state, then i'm grateful and i will work with him. so i think it is as simple as that. and i think he has been perfectly willing to hold the view that he's not a good steward of the economy, not good on budget negotiations but he's good on this. and we worked together on this. i d
by their numbers that are going to cripple us as, quote, big government. >> "wall street journal," barack obama -- when the history of this administration is written, maybe someone will note the difference. here is that man who promised a transformative presidency, and it amounted to a two-prong attempt to impose from one side a version of european social democracy by way of obama care. and from the other side a version of chinese state-directed capitalism by the way of stimulus. mr. obama might squeak by. he has in addition to incumbency and a vestige of likability, a candidate who found his stride late in the campaign. but a second term will mean four years of spent ideas packaged in shopworn rhetoric to be shoved down the throat by a president who has nothing politically to lose. i'm not sure that's fair. would you agree with that? i don't think so. >> i would agree that the president's exhausted intellectually when it comes to what he plans to do for the next our years. i think there's a big question mark, though, also over what mitt romney would do over the next four years. only thing we k
administration, there's been a lot of talk about things social issues that, again i think my generation is far more liberal. and i think the moment for me was just when barack obama was elected president and mitch mcconnell tempore ribbons said -- let us make him a one-term president. i did not think that was a fair shake. i think there would have to work together and we would see more bipartisanship going forward and another four years. host: why not support mitt romney? caller: i am not really voting for the president as much as i am of voting against mitt romney. at the end of the day, the positions -- is about character. his been all over the map. i did not do not know what he believes, do not know what he stands for. that is really hard for me to judge someone. i can see the president's record anticipate some decisions he might make in the future. i cannot anticipate what a mitt romney administration might be. host: they both have op-eds any washington street journal. -- wall street journal. for romney, a new direction for america. and obama -- real progress, but we are not don. you can g
businessmen. on the administration side, the numbers are proof we are continuing to heal and the slight up tick is an adjustment that comes from calculations that include more people entering the work force. president obama speaking just moments ago in hilliard ohio. >> obama: we have made real progress, but we are here today because we know we have more work to do. >> remember when mitt romney went to london and insulted the english? now he's proving he doesn't even have to be in the country to of fen it. romney asked the crowd if we were on the road to looking like greece, or italy, or spain. the under secretary fired back. and he says romney has no knowledge of what is going on in europe, and any comparison is a rookie error from someone who has never ruled before. >> and never been to italy clearly. >> so he is managing to be an equal opportunity offender both here and abroad. we'll be right back after the break. ♪ our country's future depends on you. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. take the time
week about ohio. without autos, without auto manufacturing, it would be very hard to see how the obama team can continue to have excitement and emotional momentum on their side in ohio. it could very well be that the car situation and the help that this administration provided could be the stonewall. however, you look at this momentum, and mike, you follow campaigns. you follow political efforts. and when you have this kind of momentum heading into the final week, it's got to be a good feeling for the romney campaign as they look at the last eight days of where they are. >> you know, usually in campaigns, joe, you know this better than any of us sitting here because you've been on the ballot. you get an indication four, five days out that something has tipped within one campaign or another. and it's set in motion. and so you sort of know who the winner will be. that's not the case this year. i fall back on something that you keep hearing repeatedly when you're out there talking with people, that the president of the united states somehow -- well, we know how -- did himself irreparable
